Since its founding, Fishman Haygood’s goal has been to hire the best people to do quality work. Many of our attorneys are recognized annually as being among the top providers in their practice areas, ranging from corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, and real estate, to litigation and bankruptcy. New associates work directly with partners and often deal directly with clients. Our associates have an immediate impact in business deals and litigation matters. The firm also prides itself on collaborative efforts across practice areas. Because of our size, we easily build connections with each other and our clients.

Fishman Haygood also welcomes recognized, qualified leaders from top law firms across the nation as lateral hires. In interviewing experienced attorneys to join our team, we consider professional achievement, judicial clerkship experience, and academic record.
